Medicom Toy celebrated PicoPico’s 20th Anniversary of making sofubi with the PicoPico Grand Exposition held in early May at the Medicom Toy Plus store in Ometosando Hills. The show featured 45 custom Gacky-Kun’s from various artists as well as special editions of toys Picopico designed and/or sculpted. For those that couldn’t make it to the physical show, Medicom is offering an online version of the show. For overseas customers (outside of Japan), the online exposition/release goes live at 8 PM PDT on Friday (5.18) via Medicom’s CJ MART.
The exposition page has quite a few sofubi releases from several companies including One Up, Max Toy, Lulubell and of course Picopico. A few of these stand out to us. First there’s Escagot no shounen – a doll figure created by the artist before we was known as Picopico. Medicom is offering new sofubi versions to celebrate the previous doll releases. Another standout is the Gandy-Kun Touya Sato Exclusive with colors chosen by Touya Sato, the father of Gandy-Kun. Finally, the Blobpus painted Shishigashira is aces in our book. If you’re a Picopico fan, you should definitely check out the exposition page.
